  • Imposing Hindi will not bind Indians together; it will create acrimony - Telegraph India

    The BJP led government is trying to divert attention from its failure to bring about any developmentSir Within days of having claimed that Hindi should be accepted as a common language by all Indians, the home minister, Amit Shah, has now said that he does not mean to impose the language on anyone. However, this is hardly believable ( Tongue twist , Sept 17). If the Bharatiya Janata Party never had the intention of pushing for Hindi as the primary language in India, then what was the need of introducing numerals on the new currency notes in Devanagari script or trying to make Hindi compulsory in schools? It seems that Shah was testing ground with his push for Hindi. His clarification is by no means a consolation.

  • Will Reliance Jio profit again from Trai's change of tune on IUC rules? - Livemint

    Exactly two years ago, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) had slashed the interconnection usage charge (IUC) by more than half to six paise. It had also said that the fee will be abolished from January 2020. This newspaper s headline then read, Trai lowers IUC, Reliance Jio prevails over Airtel, Idea .As it turned out, Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd s net outgo on IUC fell to 1,082 crore in the December quarter of FY18, when the charge was slashed, from Rs2,140 crore in the preceding quarter. With annualised savings of over 4,200 crore for Jio, it was amply clear who had gained the most from Trai s change of rules.

  • Airtel, Vodafone Idea get an unexpected, but pleasant surprise from TRAI - Business Today

    IUC charges are applicable only on mobile to mobile voice calls; there are no IUC charges on other types of calls mobile to landline, landline to mobile, and landline to landline. TRAI's decision is expected to benefit incumbents Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea who had more incoming calls on their network compared to outgoing calls. Market leader Vodafone Idea had 59.3 per cent incoming calls out of the total calls on its network in June (outgoing calls were 40.7 per cent). In comparison, Reliance Jio had 35.75 per cent incoming calls out of the total calls on its network in the same month. Having more incoming calls (than outgoing calls) indicate a net gain for the telco."It's going to favour old telcos if TRAI decides to extend the deadline for scrapping IUC charges. The charges have ensured that legacy networks reap benefits from their large investments over the years," says a telecom consultant. The last time (in 2017) when IUC rates were slashed from 14 paisa per minute to 6 paisa, there was huge uproar in the industry, primarily led by Airtel and Vodafone Idea. The incumbents were demanding a hike in IUC charges to 30 paisa in order to recover money invested in their network.

  • Apple Arcade Shows What Mobile Gaming Can Be When Freed of Microtransactions - Hollywood Reporter

    Mobile gaming has fallen into a familiar rut over the last few years: match three puzzlers, Battle Royale shooters, augmented reality Pok eacute;mon Go copycats, tower defense games that push card collecting mechanics on unsuspecting users (and parents #39; bank accounts). Amid the same old routine, truly ambitious mobile titles have been few and far between, further convoluting a market that feels more watered down with each passing year. The majority of these issues stem from developers looking for a good way to monetize their games. Most mobile titles are either free or only cost players a few bucks upfront (or a few hundred bucks over the course of a game #39;s lifetime in the case of free to play titles). Apple Arcade, Apple 's game centric subscription service meant to fit right in between its Apple Music and Apple TV services, aims to change that.
